Lets all chip in to make a subcarrier. I have 100bucks i can donate. :P
I still think China should stick with submarines like the kilo, and the new yuan. And if the EU lifts the ban, they can get some sub tech from Germany.

Oh right because strategic bombers are so useful in self defense. That's got South China Sea writen all over it.

heyheyhey, attack is the only defence, and dont forget china is a huge country, it needs to have the most powerful military in the world, it only makes sense if it tries to do better than the unitedstates becasue it has alot more people to feed and protect

japan on the other hand has enough weapons for their amount of population, plus, whos going to invade japan????

japan really has a nice fleet, everyone got to agree on that right?

china always claims the large numbers of islands in its southern sea (half of them are not under control of china right now),
having a good fleet, or even a carrier is good for PLA to control that area

"um... theres an idea: subcarriers"

It's been done. The Japanese had a few at the close of WWII. Each could hold about four planes if memory serves. Their intention was to bomb the Panama Canal. War ended though before they could be deployed.

back to topic


if the chinese navy wants to develop, we need to have more seaports and naval bases.

taiwan is china's, so sooner or later china is going to take taiwan back and we can build a military base there
